The repairs and investment team has developed a fencing and boundary policy for council-owned homes, which was recently approved at a recent meeting of the Housing Management Advisory Board (HMAB).

After consultation with the Housing Management Advisory Board (HMAB) and Charnwood Housing Residents’ Forum (CHRF) the policy has been published and publicised to tenants in Your Homes Matter, the Council's quarterly magazine that is posted to all tenants' homes in the borough.

The objectives of the policy are to set out clearly the obligations of both the landlord and tenant regarding fencing and boundaries at all tenanted properties and communal areas.

It will provide a framework by which a consistent approach of the council’s position on boundary responsibilities can be practised by staff and which provides a means by which disputes can be resolved through the application of the policy.

The new policy will be monitored and reviewed annually. Please find the Fencing and Boundary Policy 2022-2026 below:
